Ways to Sell Your Home Faster

A home that is up for sale can be stressful. From having to leave the house for open houses and showings to maintaining the property in a clean condition, it can be nerve-wracking. After you have made the decision to sell your home, you want to be able to rest easy knowing that you won’t remain in this anxious limbo for too long. You’re ready to give up those keys and collect your check so you can move on.

What can you do to quickly sell your house? These strategies will help you sell your property quickly and without putting a lot of pressure on your wallet.

1. DECLUTTER.

Nothing can take the beauty out of a home like clutter. Although organizing and straightening up is not the most enjoyable way to spend your day, it can make a big difference. This is not only about getting rid of junk mail. Clear out your entryways and mudrooms of all extra bags, boots, and coats. Clear your countertops and make sure to clean up in the bathroom and kitchen cabinets.

2. RENT A STORAGE UNIT.

Before you list your home for sale, try removing a third of your belongings, especially closets. This will make it appear larger. You might consider renting a storage unit instead of stuffing your basement and attic. Buyers will also be interested in these spaces!

3. CLEAN LIKE NEVER BEFORE.

Some stains are invisible regardless of how long you have lived in your home. Although not everyone will do the white glove test, most visitors will see things like dusty shelves and dirty window sills. (And the crusty stuff at the bottom of your oven must go.

4. RELEASE YOUR CURB APPEAL.

A property that looks good from the outside will likely have been maintained on the inside. Prospective owners see a lush lawn and a beautiful yard as an additional thing to take care of after they move in.

5. You must get rid of personal items.

It’s hard to believe that anyone would want to see your Beanie Baby collection. Quirky displays can not only distract potential buyers but they can also turn them away from the property. You shouldn’t do that.

6. Be your own marketing machine

A great agent is half of the battle. However, it’s important to spread the word yourself. You never know who might have friends or family searching for new digs.

7. MAKE SURE YOUR PHOTOS ARE PERFECT & PLENTIFUL.

Online photos will be the basis of most buyers’ first impressions of your house. You don’t want to let amateurs take pictures of your home. Experiential photographers know how to showcase each room to its best advantage. Do not let your space look dark and cramped.

8. MAKE MAJOR DIFFERENCES WITH MINOR UPGRADES

Paint can brighten up rooms and give them a new look. You don’t need to spend a lot on major kitchen renovations. Instead, you can make inexpensive upgrades like changing the hardware and light fixtures. You can replace one or more of your older appliances if you are willing to spend a little more.

A simple task like cleaning grout in the bathroom can make it shine.
